Neither man had a permit to carry a gun, according to officials in Ohio and Georgia.
Neither body showed evidence of a severe beating. Baker had cuts and bruises on his face and abrasions on his knees that could have been suffered in a fall during the crime. But the two men were dressed in thick clothing, which often reduces bruising and abrasions on beating victims, Parker said.
"They may have been beaten; they may have been kicked. We just can't tell from the autopsy," Parker said.
Due to a gag order issued in the case, police and prosecutors have declined to say whether they are seeking more suspects or plan further arrests. Both agencies declined to comment yesterday on the autopsies.
Baker's pants pocket contained one large and six small plastic bags of a dried, green, leafy substance "suggestive of marijuana," the report said.
Baker had been arrested twice in Akron, Ohio, his hometown, with drugs. At the time of his death, he was wanted on an open warrant for failing to appear for arraignment on charges of possession of cocaine and driving with an open container of alcohol.
Lollar, too, had been charged with drug trafficking offenses in the past few years before moving to Georgia.
